Batteries Don't Work as Well in the Cold

Car batteries need to be stored in temperate environments to work their best. If they are left in extremely cold temperatures, it may reduce their capacity to start the vehicle. Furthermore, the starter and alternator may need more amps to properly function. If a battery is old, it could increase the likelihood that it doesn't start the car or does so slowly.

During the winter months, you could also put more strain on the car because of increased windshield wiper and headlight usage. To increase the chances that your battery starts as usual when it is cold outside, consider charging it when not in use.
